AmiPDF page refresh fix request

Hi I have a small bugfix/feature request for AmiPDF. 10 min implementation :-) When resizing the window it redraws the PDF everytime, as expected. However, some PDFs are extremely slow to redraw (several seconds on X1000) which means that I have already resized the window and released the mouse butt...

Re: Overcoming the 2GB RAM limitation

Unfortunately, other code is not always testing against NULL, a substantial portion of code does nutty pointer math and that stuff usually breaks with signed variables when addresses are above 2 gig. So, it's always a smart idea to use unsigned when dealing with addresses. But does these pieces of ...

Re: RoadShow reset handler not wait for unresponsive apps

Is it really documented that all Internet programs need to respond to Ctrl-C?

And yes, I also think it is unnecessary for RoadShow to need to shut down cleanly. Sure it is nice to try, but freezing the machine when it fails is annoying.

Re: Overcoming the 2GB RAM limitation

It can't be implemented simply by "fixing" and recompiling the kernel. It needs just about every system component to be modified and recompiled. The result is not likely to give a great improvement, since the 32-bit address space means that a program can't, EVER, address more than 4 GB of address s...

RoadShow reset handler not wait for unresponsive apps

When performing a softreset it seems there are some reset handlers that are run. It seems like RoadShow sends Ctrl-C to all programs that have bsdsocket.library open, then wait forever until the opencount has reached zero. Not all Amiga programs respond to Ctrl-C (AmIRC for example), so a softreset ...

Re: Jerky mouse with dockies enabled on X1000/Radeon 9250

I get exactly the same experience as you, K-L. High CPU causes the whole system to become uselessly slow and stuttering. The worst is when transcoding a video or encoding an MP3 with Lame. Before OS4 FE it would be almost unnoticeable at pri 0 (half CPU left for other things). But with OS4 FE someth...

Re: System freeze reboot workaround?

I think Intuition semaphores should have a timeout to allow other applications to continue to run after a short while (1-2-10 seconds?) in case an app enters an intuition function and crashes (which is very common). That would also allow the Grim Reaper to show up (which needs lots of intuition supp...

Re: String.gadget bug when hitting Enter

@tonyw

Glad to see it is a known bug.

ABADCAFE might be from the debug kernel, that I suppose you use most of the time?

String.gadget bug when hitting Enter

Hi For a long time (maybe earlier than update 6, can't remember exactly) I have seen a wierd bug with my text editor Annotate and its ReAction Find window's string gadget. I have teared my hair out trying to find what is wrong but could NOT find anything wrong with my code. So today!! Today I saw th...

Re: Slow compiling with OS4.1FE

Well I just have to add that I have also noticed that make seems unusually slow, even for smaller project, although projects that call make (not the same makefile) recursively one step. With the debug/verbose option I can see that make is doing A LOT of stuff, trying hundreds of default targets and ...
